Research Activities Research in the Anderson Lab centers around three major areas 1) restoring degraded ecosystems, 2) improving the management of the coastal zone, and 3) the scholarship of pedagogy. His large-scale ecological restoration projects across California, Louisiana, and eastern Turkey (for which his team was awarded the 2008 Whitley Gold Award for International Conservation) usually focus on coastal wetland, reefs, and riparian systems. His coastal zone management work includes quantifying the effects of roads on mobile animals in southern California, evaluating the sustainability of seafood options available for purchase, and assessing the impact of pollutants on marine and estuarine systems. He created and now co-leads the NCEAS National Working Group on the Ecotoxicology of Gulf Oil Spill, the only independent national body investigating the long-term ecological consequences of the largest marine oil spill in history. Major coastal restoration projects extend across California, Louisiana, and Turkey. Previously have worked in Antarctica, Gulf of California (Mexico), and Hawaii. The Anderson lab also has much experience with small aerial and aquatic unmanned systems for monitoring coastal and marine regions.
